En-Com­pass-ing one of Ay­ck­bourn’s finest

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

RUIS­LIP Dra­matic So­ci­ety’s forth­com­ing pro­duc­tion is a play for any­one who has ever sung ‘Christ­mas is com­ing’ with more than a slight sense of dread.

Half-a-dozen rel­a­tives and friends are cel­e­brat­ing Christ­mas with Neville and Belinda. But this is by no means an av­er­age fam­ily gath­er­ing. There’s an un­cle who keeps a gun with him at all times, an al­co­holic sis­ter-in-law and her in­ef­fec­tual hus­band, and a highly at­trac­tive mys­te­ri­ous vis­i­tor.

Writ­ten in 1980, the story is now con­sid­ered one of Bri­tish play­wright Alan Ay­ck­bourn’s best. What? Sea­son’s Greet­ings Where? Com­pass The­atre, Glebe Av­enue, Ick­en­ham, UB10 8PD When?
